RAVE reviews – including a call for a TV show to be made – have been flooding in for Kelty Clippie: The Musical after its sold-out return to the Kingdom following a successful run at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe.

The hour-long show was inspired by the iconic folk song of the same name and follows heroine Maggie Blair, a bus conductress on her new job.

Neale Hanvey, MP for Kirkcaldy and Cowdenbeath, saw the show in the Linton Lane community centre in Kirkcaldy and said: “Kelty Clippie: The Musical is a wonderful, heart-warming and beautifully-acted show that brought so many memories flooding back from when I was a youngster.

"From the days when the terminus was on the esplanade, and the clubs to be at were the Garrison and Nairn’s social club, to memories of sitting on the bench seats on school trips with streamers out every window."

And he made sure there was parliamentary recognition of the efforts of the cast.

The MP added: “It was an absolute pleasure and a privilege to present the cast, and The Kelty Clippie herself, impeccably brought to life by the amazing Jacqueline Hannan, with the commendation I lodged as an Early Day Motion in Parliament acknowledging this outstanding theatrical work.

“A fabulous production by Kingdom Theatre Company that I’d recommend to anyone.

"Someone should really make a TV show of this, it’s magic!”
